I get it now. Ha, thats besides the fact I bolted them in the wrong place. And I'm wondering why my seat belts don't work.

I'm actually retarded when it comes to reading directions.

I had a friend with me who installed 3, and said nothing about what I did.
I saw him do the passenger side the same way.
I guess I'm not the biggest retard in this group.

Based on asking this group for help makes you:

a) Not a retard
b) In the right place for help and
c) Wiser than your helper

Maybe you should find out who the previous three were and tell them to go check.

Those Bethania instructions are not the most helpful. FWIW I did not grind any material from my guides and (as long as the seats are not all the way back) I have no seatbelt retract problems.

Good luck with your fix.

I've got the same "seatbelt no retractee" issue.

Nailed it down to it being the plastic trim that causes the problem and am gonna fix it when it is warmer out.

Just need a better tool than a sawzall to cut my plastic trim with is all, lol...

Cheers,
Matt

Changed it to the right hole. Seatbelts work as they used to now. No removal of material. Awesome.
